Has anyone figured out how to use the off topic password in Tapatalk?



Thanks

You know after they first initiated the password, I still saw the threads, perhaps the ones that I had posted in? But now that I think of it I have not seen them in a while. I just tried it and cannot in fact get into it.

I don't know about tapatalk, but, when you type the password, the J must be capitalized.

Yea, tried it both ways, strange thing is it does not say bad password either way, just brings you back to the regular off topic screen. I must admit I have not tried it in a web browser as I have not visited it since the password was initiated.

I cannot even get a text box to show on the screen.

When I click on the icon on the top left corner and go to "Browse" in the menu then choose general interest then Off Topic then at the top is P/R/W/G when I click on that it comes up Protected forum and the cursor is flashing on a line that says Password and type it in and hit Submit.

Now I am getting into the forum. Oh my eyes ouch, got to get out.... So they may have changed something, or perhaps my connection is faster today or something.

What version of Tapatalk are you using? I am on 4.0.25 I know there are a lot of changes from version 3.

Re: off topic password and Tapatalk

I just double checked and apparently I have 2 versions loaded one was the beta for 4. I uninstalled what I thought was 3.x but apparently was actually version 4. something. Now I reinstalled 4.4.1 and it is also getting in. The interface is all new and I had to re log into the forums. So lesson learned is do not just go uninstalling apps blindly! It now has a "new" icon a red cartoon speech bubble with a lower case t in it. I like the layout a lot better though.

Oh and by the way now that I put in that password, I am getting off topic in my "unread messages window" grr.... I guess that shows me to try to help out a fellow tapatalk user! So don't put it in unless you want off topic.
